I am Not a moring person either, but that is when I have the best luck with no output when I change. So I get everything ready and layed out the night before. Yeh, I have changed at all times of the day. Some folks on here recommend eating marshmallows a short time before the change to thicken up and slow any output. Usually, on my changing mornings, I go directly from bed to changing it.... before my stoma even has a chance to fully wake up!!! Nothing by mouth until after the change - that helps too. And, boy does that first cup of coffee or tea taste good by then.
General concensus --- do it when you need it, but you will find the best time for your body as you experiment. Sounds like you are doing fine. Do you use Eakin Seals or any kind of paste around the stoma Hole
